‘Disappointed’ NYC marathoners to run in aid of Sandy victims
Somehow, Reuters pointing out the marathoner’s disappointment cuts across the grain of the story’s presumed intention. Get the freak over it. The marathoners should have had enough sense and compassion to do the right thing in the first place. This isn’t what I’d call making up ground, exactly.
Hundreds of runners in New York City are refusing to let a canceled marathon spoil their Sunday plans and are channeling months of preparation into informal runs intended to benefit victims of superstorm Sandy.
Amid criticism from victims of Mondays storm that the race would divert resources away from efforts to help flood-ravaged parts of the city, Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Friday abruptly canceled Sundays marathon. The event was expected to draw more than 40,000 runners to the city – including Kelly Rooney, a 31-year-old stay-at-home mother from Florida.
